Predictions

  • Rules
  1. I will choose one match from each day of men’s tennis which I think is interesting and take predictions for that match.
  2. You can predict the winner, the number of sets played, and the score. The more of these three categories you predict the better will be your chance of winning because I award points for each category.
  3. You can make only one prediction per match and once you’ve made it that’s it. I won’t take any requests for changes.
  4. Points will be awarded as follows:
    • Predicting the correct winner – 3 points
    • Predicting the winner and number of sets correctly – 6 points
    • Predicting the winner, number of sets, and the sets in the correct order – 9 points
    • Predicting everything correctly aside from the tie-break scores if there are tie-breaks – 20 points
    • Predicting everything correctly including the right tie-break scores if there are tie-breaks(a perfect prediction) – 30 points
  5. Whoever is ranked #1 at the end of the tournament wins and will remain in the #1 spot until the next tournament, at which point we start a new tournament and everyone starts from 0 points again.
  6. You can join the game at any time during the tournament. You don’t have to start from round one. You can skip rounds too.
  7. The rankings will be displayed on the front page of my blog so that everyone will know who are the best predictors in the tennis world.
  8. I will not take part in the competition as people could believe I rig the rankings in my own favor(knowing the point system you will be able to calculate the points yourself but I think it is better if I sit out anyway).
  • How to Play

After every post during a tournament, I will select the match for which you can make a prediction and post a link to this page. Then you must make your prediction in the comment selection below. Once the match that I selected begins predictions will close and I will accept no more. Then once the match is over I will calculate the results and adjust the rankings. The rankings will always be displayed on my blog and once the tournament is over I will announce the winner.

  1. Might as well get this one in early, torn between Djokovic or Federer in 5, I’ll go with Novak:

    6-7(4) 7-5 6-2 6-7(8) 6-4

    Lol thought I might as well go for something absolutely crazy, including a 6-2 blowout set and a ridiculous tiebreak just because I can :-) To be honest I really have no clue, just a wild guess, Federer-Djokovic is just such a close, back-and-forth rivalry these days.
